Annual spring fundraising campaign doubles the impact for hungry children and families in Milwaukee

Match Madness MKE, benefitting Hunger Task Force, tips off today. The spring gift-matching campaign supports hunger relief for children and families in Milwaukee County. For the ninth consecutive year, the annual fundraiser is held just before the NCAA tournament. For those looking to score big, every donation to Hunger Task Force during Match Madness MKE, held March 1 – 10, is doubled dollar-for-dollar thanks to a generous matching pool comprised of the Brian A. McCarty Family Fund, Sargento, Zurn Elkay Water Solutions and additional private donors.

Every dollar raised through Match Madness MKE will provide healthy and delicious food to local pantries and meal programs in the Hunger Task Force network to feed hungry children, families and seniors on the day they need it and in the neighborhood they live in.  

To kick off Match Madness MKE, the Hoan Bridge will be lit up in Hunger Task Force colors on Friday, March 1.

Match Madness MKE donations can be made online. Double your dollar and donate today!
